Can you help me with information about accomodation for students.

Gera is far away from Frankfurt. Are you sure? Only a one-way ticket Frankfurt-Gera should be around 70 Euros.
With 33 Euros Daily Budget, it doesn't look good, isn't it?
Depends of course how often you'll travel.

If you buy your food in the supermarket, it will be sufficient.
Dinners in restaurants and clubbing will not fit in this budget I suppose.
#alex on Jun 04, 2014 :
Hi,
I just want to ask if 1000 Euro is enough to live in Germany for 1 Month with less travel, between Frankfort and Gera? I will not pay any rent for apartment and some other utilities aside from food, transportation and occasional dinner and clubbing. So is 1000 Euro enough for one month budget?

Thanks All!

It would be ridiculous to say that 45k is a bad salary since most of the Germans live with less.
Taxes and social expenses are very high here, so you'll get around 2200-2300 net p.m. This is the standard beginner salary (with an university degree). Almost everything depends on your lifestyle.
You can live decently, it is not that bad for the beginning since your income will grow in the next years.
#Matjaz on Mar 30, 2014 :
I've been offered a job here in Frankfurt for 45.000 annually. I am single and 25 years old. Do you think that this is enough to live in Frankfurt?
#DJ Ivan on Mar 22, 2014 :
Dima:
70k gross salary means around 3800 net p.M. (married person, 2 Kids).
You should consider at least 1500 p.m. for a 3 bedroom flat (100qm) in a good location (Sachsenhausen, Westend). For high end standard prices can get far above 2000. Frankfurt is expensive and accommodation is very hard to find since there are many people with very high income here which are ready to pay a lot.
With the cost for a car (which you'll need), insurance, heating, electricity etc. you'll easily get over 2000-2300 cost. With the rest 1500 for 4 people you can live decently, but far away from luxurious.

For singles, around 65k is a good salary. For a single earner family with 2 Kids, I will not advice anybody coming here unless he earns over 100k.
#Dima on Feb 27, 2014 :
Hello
Will I make it with 70000 Euro/year in Frankfurt (kids 5.5 years old and 6 months old, wife at home)

Thank you
#Bernhard J Riffel on Feb 25, 2014 :
Hi sumen,
Gross Salary of EUR 84,000 per annum for a married person with two kids and a non-working wife (i.e. single earner in family) means a Net Income of EUR 60,814 per annum / EUR 5,068 per month.
Deductions were EUR 10,884 for Taxes and EUR 12,302 for Social Security.

#sumen on Feb 11, 2014 :
to nett 5000 pm, how much do you have to earn pa?
#sumen on Feb 11, 2014 :
Good Day

I might get an opportunity to relocation from South Africa to Frankfurt. I am married and have two kids, one 6 and the other 1. What is a good salary to earn to live comfortably. My wife won't be working.
#Bernhard J Riffel on Feb 05, 2014 :
Hi Lenny Stein,
I give you some information based on the latest official figures for 2014.
Gross Salary EUR 60,000 - Taxable Income EUR 51,334 - Income Tax for Single Person EUR 13,326 - Solidarity Tax EUR 732 - Net Income before Deductions for Social Security EUR 45,942
The following contributions for Social Security are to be borne by employees, employers are charged nearly the same amounts in addition.
Deductions for Pension Fund (9.45% of Gross Salary) EUR 5,670 - for Unemployment Insurance (1.5% of Gross Salary) EUR 900 - for Health Insurance (8.2% capped at EUR 48,600) EUR 3,985 - for Surcharge for Persons without Children (0.25% capped at EUR 48,600) EUR 122 - for Insurance for Care (1.025% capped at EUR 48,600) EUR 498
Net Income after above Deductions EUR 34,767
Taxes on Income increase progressively. Therefore a Gross Salary of EUR 70,000 (Taxable Income of EUR 60,785) means Income Tax for a Single Person of EUR 17,290 plus Soldarity Tax of EUR 950
With a Net Income of EUR 34,767 per annum i.e. EUR 2,897 per month for a single person you can enjoy a comfortable though not very wealthy standard of living.
Enjoy you stay in Germany.
Bernhard

Hi all, my name is Nishit Gandhi and I have 07 years of experience after my MBA in finance. I have total experience in one company only and that is State Street Syntel Services PVT LTD (In India - JV of State street & Syntel company of USA). I am planning to apply for jobseeker visa and looking for Frankfurt as I believe there will be more opportunity of my field. Appreciate if anyone can guide me companies of my field over there and how much salary I can expect. So far I know BNY Mellon is there.

Regards,
Nishit Gandhi
#Lenny stein on Jan 27, 2014 :

Thank you all. have a great day

#LS on Dec 27, 2013 :
Hello,

thats is my 6th month at frankfurt and all data-entries a very realistic!
#Dj Ivan on Sep 23, 2013 :
Hi Sultani,

The salary may vary a lot - mainly depending on the company (big international banks pay more than small local companies), the position and your skills.

Around 45-50k should be the minimum, above 60k is realistic only for senior positions. Managers can go far above 100k.

Also expect having hard times finding an affordable acomodation.

Hope this helps.
#M.A. Raheem Sultani on Sep 20, 2013 :

Hi there

my question is what will be the decent salary i ask my employer to stay in FRA city?
#Mladen Adamovic on Sep 19, 2011 :
Claudio, thanks. I checked some entries and it's now corrected! :-)
#Claudio on Sep 19, 2011 :
According to your index the cost of living in Berlin are slightly higher than the cost of living in Frankfurt. That's unrealistic. Rent, meals, markets, cars are all significantly more expensive in Frankfurt. You should check the entries.
